VideoTesting for Gene-Environment Interactions in Daily Life: What Can We Learn about Antisocial Behavior and Genetic Risk from Adolescents’ Mobile Phones?

This talk will share new findings from a genetically informative study to track adolescents’ experiences and behaviors in daily life using mobile phones. Evidence of heightened reactivity among adolescents with the DRD4-7 allele to daily triggers is presented, along with a discussion of how mobile-phone based assessments can be leveraged to advance our understanding of the role of both genes and the environment in shaping antisocial behavior among adolescents.
